    No hope of a long career

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) Waynesboro, VA

    ProsGood benefits. That is all

    ConsManagement, turnover, no job security, inconsistency, horrible base pay, inconsistent commission structure

    I literally panic about the possibility of getting fired at least once a week. The micro management is almost too much. I look for a new job every single day. And this is after 5 years of employment

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't even know where to begin

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Opportunities for advancement
